Latin America offered expanded markets to an economy crippled by the Great Depression, while threats of war abroad nurtured in many Americans isolationist tendencies and a desire for improved hemispheric relations. One of these Americans was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the primary author of Americas Good Neighbor Policy. In this thought-provoking book, Fredrick Pike takes a wide-ranging look at FDRs motives for pursuing the Good Neighbor Policy, at how he implemented it, and at how its themes have played out up to the mid-1990s.

Pikes investigation goes far beyond standard studies of foreign and economic policy. He explores how FDRs personality and Eleanor Roosevelts social activism made them uniquely simpatico to Latin Americans. He also demonstrates how Latin culture flowed north to influence U.S. literature, film, and opera. The book will be essential reading for everyone interested in hemispheric relations.
